Magpie  The Mountain Goats

This is pretty much all correct. I am a little uncertain of the D chord in the verse. If
D doesn't work for you, try a B minor.
Intro: Em G D Em x2
[Em]Feed the kittens in the [G]kitchen
[D]Set food out for the [Em]strays
[Em]Try hard to do your [G]best
The [D]magpie will have his [Em]way
Em G D Em x2
[Em]Fill your mouth with [G]berries
By the [D]full light of the[Em] moon
[Em]Work all night if you [G]have to
The [D]magpie comes at [Em]noon
Em Bm A Em x4
[Em]Shore up the cruc[G]ifixes
Above the [D]archways and the [Em]doors
The [Em]magpie will come at [G]midday
And you will [D]go down on all [Em]fours
Em G D Em x2
[Em]And when the cherry's white with [G]blossoms
Be [D]ready and be [Em]brave
[Em]And remember what we [G]had here
When there was [D]something left to [Em]save
Em Bm A Em x4
